    No, we don't even know that. You are assuming something even with the bolded statement. The whole idea behind Neighborhood Watch is, "If you see something suspicious, call 911." You are assuming he was patrolling his neighborhood when all he may have been doing is driving to the store.

    Will you PULLLEEZE stop saying Zimmerman was seen standing on Trayvon. That is not true. You think it is? Where's the link?


    P.S. I don't ever remember seeing a thread as active as this: 14 Members and 9 Guests. Maybe I just never noticed before....?
    It was Cutcher, iirc who said that she saw Z straddling M after the shooting.

    Focus in Trayvon Martin case shifts to Washington - CNN.com

    Mary Cutcher and her roommate, Selma Mora Lamilla, told CNN Monday that they ran outside. "Within seconds," they were about 10 feet away from Martin's body, Lamilla said."(Zimmerman) was standing over the body, basically straddling the body with his hand on Trayvon's back," said Cutcher, adding that they called three times to him before he finally asked them to call police. "It didn't seem to me that he was trying to help him in any way."
    I may be wrong.

    True. And even then calling would be proper, prudent, and perfectly within reason. Then step aside.

    I never even thought of this... how do neighbourhood watch patrols actually work? Is there some sort of schedule where volunteers are scheduled?

    Uh oh, another black guy who happens to be a criminal. Absolute proof that Zimmerman should have killed Trayvon Martin.

    Stop the race baiting. Even when I take Martin's and Zimmerman's races out of the equation, it still looks bad to me.

    Was the old white guy out "wearing a hoodie and looking suspicious?" Was Lewis an armed Neighborhood Watch person who didn't listen to the cops and avoid the situation?

    Because if not, there is no similarity.

    I'm beginning to really understand why obtaining justice can be a very difficult thing. And I say that without prejudice to either of these guys. I have to smile at all the perjoratives I read in these threads...I've used some of them myself.

    Zimmerman was stalking Martin.
    Zimmerman confronted Martin.
    Zimmerman was told to back off.
    Zimmerman was a cop-wanna-be.

    This whole thing has been a lesson in jumping to conclusions for me. Because none of us, not one, knows everything that happened that night. And, as usual, the devil's in the details.

    I stand corrected about what that witness said.

    Re: Trayvon Martin - burglary tools and illegal drugs possession...

    So Joko... you gonna make good on your claims that I brought up Trayvon's suspensions over and over again? Better yet - tell us all how Travyon was suspended over "burglary tools" even though the article your posted sources another article which said the exact opposite? You've proven you're not even honest enough to retract your bull**** lies. At least make good on your claims about posters.

    There are different kinds of neighborhood watch programs. The main idea behind all of them is to educate all of the residents in a neighborhood to . . . watch and report. It's not simply a band of volunteers who patrol neighborhoods, although undoubtedly many have volunteers who do exactly that.

    Edit: How funny! The title of the link. But it works.
